  1. Every year the earth loses a significant amount of forest cover through deforestation, dam constructions, farming and agriculture, mining or any other industrial development. Along with forests, a lot of flora, fauna and wildlife is at stake as well as most animals lose forest covers and migrate or get displaced in order to find home again. But efforts in conservation make all the difference to lost forests and their animals and we have one example in maintaining those efforts, right here. Way back in 1994, a Brazilian photojournalist, Sebastião Salgado, returned from Rwanda, East Africa, where he was capturing the horrors of the genocide. Soon, he was returning home from there, hoping he'd get to spend some time at home, with the lush green forests that surround it, in Minas Gerais area of Brazil. But unfortunately, he didn't find what he had expected. He came home to a dusty and damaged landscape, dried up rivers, no trees or any greenery to support the landscape, and all the wildlife was certainly gone. Salgado was devastated and surprised to find the land covered in 0.5% of trees, which is next to nothing. © Sebastiao Selgado facebook Imagine you live in an area which is beautiful and nourishing green. It becomes a part of your life. You wake up with the sounds of birds chirping and peacocks strumming their hefty tunes, welcoming the mornings. Then one day you decide to go away to say study or work elsewhere. But home is home, so you have to go back sometime. And when you're back, the trees, the peacocks, the greenery is all wiped out, because the pollution and the toxic air didn't let anything else breathe. It's a feeling of losing an entire home and that's exactly how Sebastião Salgado was feeling. The reason I asked you to imagine his situation is because he did something to revive what he had lost, much like what you and I can do, for losing trees and forest covers around our surroundings. © Sebastiao Selgado Facebook Salgado's wife, Lelia, seeing how shattered he was suggested a next-to-impossible proposal. She suggested that if the two worked hard enough, they could restore an entire forest, just like how it was. If the forest gains its green cover back, the wildlife will come back on an autopilot. Although, Salgado was a bit doubtful, he agreed to work towards reviving the forest land back to its glory, bringing back all the species that once flourished there. And right after both decided upon this thought, there was no looking back. The first transformative seed was sowed back in 1998, to begin the entire process but the couple realised it wasn't a two people job. So, to help make the process easier to convert a 1,754 acre of land back to a forest, they hired 24 people who worked day and night with the couple to plant saplings and get rid of invasive weeds, that were making it difficult to grow anything there. © Sebastiao Selgado Intagram To bring in some amount of funding aid to build the forest simultaneously the couple set up and organisation called Instituto Terra, which recruited partners and volunteers who planted at least 4 million saplings. The main aim of the environmental organisation is to restore the eco-system in the area and help procure and plant the saplings over years, by producing Atantic Forest Seedlings. The community since then has grown bigger and better involving students, farmers, teachers, volunteers and local officials who give their time to build the forest. Along with that, the organisation provides advice to farmers who're helping them out in that region. © Instituto Terra Slowly, the efforts the couple made along with the volunteers paid off. Today the forest has a good green cover, with trees native to the region, along with some tropical trees as well. Even though this forest suffered severe deforestation about 20 years ago, today it stands strong as a lush green paradise, almost back to its original state. The forest has 293 species of trees and restored about 1,502 acres of tropical forest land and the work is commendable because once where there was nothing there's an entire forest now. © Instituto terra Also, it's a given. Along with the new forest, an entire eco-system was rebuilt from scratch. Due to a new transformation, a tropical microclimate is back, to retain the forest further, with rainfall and natural water bodies that have been formed over time. But the biggest joy factor is welcoming back the wildlife that went missing about 20 years ago from the forest. They eventually all made it back home and how! View this post on Instagram Look, what can happen in just 12 years! Instituto Terra showed us what is possible. What do you think, can we save our rainforest and keep it this green too? It's up to you. ð³ #BeATreeCoiner #TreeCoin #InstitutoTerra #Brasilia #Paraguay A post shared by TreecoinTXCð³ (@treecointxc) on Jan 28, 2019 at 4:11am PST © Instituto terra The return of the wild animals is the most positive transition to have taken place post the recreation of the forest. And that's because there is enough food and protection for them available now. There are now 172 species of birds, 33 types of mammals and 15 species of amphibians and reptiles, most of which are endangered and luckily now, they will live a protected life in their newly built home. © Instituto terra This by far is the most motivating and encouraging story we've ever read. Imagine building a forest and bringing it back to its original state, with the animals, flora and fauna intact. In fact, we can make a similar difference in our own surrounding, if we show a little bit of passion and determination toward building a better world. Sebastião and Lelia certainly did and they wake up each morning and tell themselves if we can built a forest from scratch, anything is possible. © Instituto terra
  2. They say money can't buy happiness, and there is no denying that it's true. But money can buy things which brings a strange pleasure to those who seek it. Be it for the happiness of our family, or personal satisfaction, we sometimes don't mind spending money on things that do not make sense but bring us pleasure. However, while most of us can only afford to spend our hard-earned money on senseless stuff only once in a while when the temptation becomes too difficult to ignore, the billionaires of this world do not have such obligations. Given the amount of money that sits in their bank accounts, they can choose to spend their millions and billions in the most unnecessary and senseless ways, without giving it a second thought. © Twitter A few hours ago, news broke that the world's richest man Jeff Bezos spent rupees 1.25 crore on bulletproof panels for his Seattle office. The inch-and-a-half thick fibreglass panels were chosen because they can reportedly withstand shots from military assault rifles. What's more, it is being said that Amazon spends over 11 crore rupees on Bezos' security annually. Now, we understand that the man needs protection, but that's a whole lot of money to spend on an individual's personal security. But this isn't all, we list down 5 other world billionaires who decided to go ahead and spend their money in even stranger ways. 1. Bill Gates © Twitter Bill Gates is a great admirer of Leonardo da Vinci and maybe that is the only explanation as to why he chose to spend over 30 million dollars on the old man's journal. Back in 1994, Microsoft founder Gates spent 30.8 million dollars to gain the ownership of the Codex Leicester. It is a 72-page manuscript compiled by da Vinci compiled in the early 16th century and features the master polymath's diagrams, writings, sketches and ideas for future inventions. 2. Mukesh Ambani © Twitter India's richest man and industrial magnate, Mukesh Ambani owns more money than we can count. With a net worth of 5,530 crore dollars, he sure built a house that speaks money. Mukesh Ambani spend 1 billion dollars to build the most expensive home in the world! A 27-storey skyscraper that stretches across 400,000-square-foot, it comes with a helipad and six-level underground parking. What's more, reportedly it also has a ballroom, a 50-seat theatre and nine elevators in the lobby alone, and requires around 600 staff to maintain the place. And all that for a family of six, that stays in the mansion at a given time. 3. Jocelyn Wildenstein's Plastic Surgeries © Twitter A well-known Swiss socialite, Wildenstein always waded in money. However, things only got bigger and crazier after she received 2.5 billion dollars as a divorce settlement. Wildenstein, who is now in her late 70s, had been spending millions, almost excessively and obsessively, on plastic surgery. According to a Mirror report, Wildenstein has spent over 27 crores on her decade-long surgeries. 4. Elon Musk © Twitter Tesla and SpaceX founder, Elon Musk is known for his eccentricity. For the man whose brain led to the inception of the Hyperloop tunnel, it only makes sense that he fancies “different” methods of personal transportation. Back in 2013, Musk acquired the Lotus Esprit submarine car of James Bond's glory, from 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and reportedly, he had to cough out almost 1 million dollars for the car which was found in a storage shed of a junk collector. 5. Hassanal Bolkiah © Twitter Known as the infamous Sultan of Brunei, Bolkiah probably got the most expensive haircut in the world. Reportedly, the Sultan flies in a barber from London and pays him around 19,000 US dollars for a single haircut. Not only that, but the Sultan also takes care of the barber's accommodation and other requirements. That's some kind of job to have, no?
  3. There's been a lot of banter about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's camera prowess. My colleague reviewed the phone earlier this week and found it to be really good, but I wanted to test it out myself before passing my judgement, if any. So I decided to borrow our review unit and took it out for a spin. And boy, was I in for a surprise! I use an iPhone XR as my daily driver and I really like that phone, its cameras included. In fact, it has been one of my favorite phones to shoot pictures with lately. Given how much I like the iPhone XR's cameras, I wasn't expecting the Note 7 Pro to take me by surprise. But trust me, I was wrong. At first, I started capturing random pictures with the Redmi Note 7 Pro to get the hang of the camera and Xiaomi's camera app. Even when I wasn't really putting much effort, this phone managed to produce shots like this: © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Yes, it was at this point that I decided to pull out my iPhone XR out of curiosity to see how they compared. It was somewhat a gloomy day here in New Delhi, which I thought was just perfect to push these cameras to their limits. So, I did. Just take a look: Note: All photos captured from the Redmi Note 7 Pro have a watermark. The images used for comparison were shot on an iPhone XR. Also, none of these images have been edited in any way whatsoever. The images, which you see below, were shot from a metro station. Both phones did a really good job here, but I personally like the Redmi Note 7 Pro's photo mainly because of the colors. They're natural, and the overall image look a lot presentable with lots of detail. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Next up, I decided to go with a shot which, honestly, even a lot of flagship smartphones struggle with. As we all know, it's pretty hard to expose the subject when there's a strong source of light right behind or around the subject. But both the phones did great in this case. The fact that Redmi Note 7 Pro managed to make it just as good as the iPhone XR did, is truly impressive. © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another one. The Redmi Note 7 Pro's image is the clear winner for me here. The focus on the subject is on point, and there's a ton of detail. Not that the iPhone's image is bad, but it's not something I would post on social media without doing a bit of tinkering unlike the Note 7 Pro's image. It's truly a stunning shot, is it? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer Even as I was losing the light and things started getting more gloomy, the Redmi Note 7 Pro didn't fail to impress me. This is one of those images, which truly made me question the point of buying an expensive phone to get good cameras. Great dynamic range and really good exposure. Just take a look - © MensXP / Karthik Iyer And here's another shot taken in low light/ artificial lighting. This restaurant is better known for its food than lighting, but the pictures aren't too shabby, are they? © MensXP / Karthik Iyer I can keep throwing in more images here from my gallery, but I think we've established a point here. No, I am not trying to pick a winner and justify my opinion. However, I must say that Xiaomi has done a phenomenal job with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. I mean, just Rs 13,990 for a smartphone that's capable of competing with big dogs like Apple's iPhone? Sign me up. Of course, I am not ready to ditch my iPhone, at least not yet, but the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a star. If you like taking pictures on your phone among other things and you don't want to burn a huge whole in your pocket, then the Redmi Note 7 Pro is a no-brainer. It's truly the budget king that everyone needs to beat. © MensXP / Akshay Bhalla Well, that wraps up just about everything. Again, most of this is subjective since not all people tend to prefer the same kind of images. But as someone who loves taking pictures for Instagram and craves a bit of a self-validation, I really enjoyed my time shooting with the Redmi Note 7 Pro. If you're looking to check out more camera samples or want to learn more about the Redmi Note 7 Pro's overall performance, then be sure to check out our review of the phone.
  4. When you have so much money that you don't even know what to do with it, you start spending it on honestly the most bizarre, frivolous things. Case in point - Drake's new diamond encrusted iPhone case. Oh, and it apparently cost him $400,000 which is exactly â¹2,85,92,000. Basically, while we're all struggling to even afford an iPhone, he spent the money it would take to buy, say 400 iPhones, on a single phone case. I mean, it's his money and he can do whatever he wants with it, so Champagne Papi just decided to call everyone a broke bitch at the same time. Well, here's the cover, and please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks this is a little tacky. View this post on Instagram Because we can't do basic! Diamond iPhone case cover for our friend @champagnepapi ðð¼ðð¼ðð¼ A post shared by JASON OF BEVERLY HILLS (@jasonofbeverlyhills) on Feb 14, 2019 at 5:21am PST Not so basic, for sure. But, I still have some questions - What will happen when a new iPhone comes and it's time for Drake to upgrade? Will he stick to his current iPhone or drop another half a million dollars on a case? Is he being this extra just because he has a song called 'hotline bling' and this is literally hotline bling come to life? Does this case offer any extra protection when his phone inevitably falls? Will the diamonds prevent a broken screen? But, most importantly, I'm just scared of him losing his phone or someone stealing it. I mean, it would hurt us if we lost our iPhone, but he would not just lost his iPhone but 3 crore worth of diamonds as well. It hurts just thinking about it. Drake, be careful man, your phone is probably a target now.
  5. If you're spending a shit ton of money on an expensive car, you probably won't shell anything more for that car, right? Wrong. KS Balagopal, a businessman from Kerala first spent a lot of money - more than one crore - to buy an imported blue Porsche 718 Boxter. Then, on top of that, he spent almost one-third of that amount to just win a fancy registration number. He bid on the number he wanted in an open auction held at the transport office in Thiruvananthapuram and then managed to win the number KL-01CK-1 after spending Rs 31 lakh for it. Am I the only one who can't figure out what's so special about the number? Twitter Reportedly, the last round of auction only had three contenders and started with a bid of just Rs 500. Wait, what? How did it end up in lakhs, let alone 31 lakh? One of the contenders, a Dubai-based NRI, decided to quit after the bid crossed Rs 10 lakh and the second one was willing to shell out Rs 25.50 lakh but when Balagopal brought up the bid to Rs 30 lakh, he also quit. On top of that, it also cost him about Rs 1 lakh to register the number as well. Well, he spent a lot of money but at least he also made a record in the process. According to the regional transport authority, this is now the highest bid for a fancy number in the country. Twitter Turns out, this is not even the first time he's spent way too much for a number. Back in 2017, he paid Rs 19 lakh for his Toyota Land Cruiser to get the number KL-01CB-01. Okay, there may be an explanation, after all, for all of this. According to Balagopal, “number addiction” was his childhood obsession and he never regrets spending big on his favourite numbers. Well, if someone can afford it, why the hell won't they do it?
  6. When Odisha based tea-seller Devarapalli Prakash Rao took it upon himself to change the lives of young kids by providing for the education of children of daily wage workers and rickshaw pullers besides many other slum children, by setting aside half of his monthly earnings for the purpose, never once did he imagine to find himself in the company of our Prime Minister, who would be all praise for the man, owing to his distinguished efforts in the field of affordable education in the country. So, when the Ministry of Home Affairs announced the list of Padma Awards for 2019, Devarapalli was in for a sweet surprise, since his name was listed amongst the 94 names that had been shortlisted for the Padma Shri award this year. © Twitter 59-year-old Devarapalli Prakash Rao has been spending a substantial part of his life and earnings for the betterment of a section of our society, which is unfortunately ignored otherwise. For the last 18 years, Rao has been educating slum children by paying for their education from his own pockets. But before setting this aside as “nothing too special”, we would like you to recall that Cuttack-based Rao, is a roadside tea-seller, who survives on a humble, daily earning. So, on Sunday when Prime Minister Narendra Modi couldn't stop gushing about all the wonderful things Rao has done, in his 44th edition of 'Mann Ki Baat', Devarapalli's life kind of came a full circle. Hailing Rao as the “guardian angel” of underprivileged kids, PM Modi shared how delighted he had been to meet Rao, who has been donating half of his daily earnings for the education and food for over 70 kids, over a span of 18 years, and changing the lives of innumerable children. © Twitter However, Rao's journey hasn't been an easy one. A school drop out himself, he set up 'Asha O Ashwasana' school in 2000. His motivation came from the discord he felt when he saw young kids in his neighbourhood giving in to the temptations of petty crimes and intoxication that alcohol promised. So, while Rao's father never bothered to take care of his education, Rao decided to do the needful for these young kids. After a lot of struggle, he managed to convince parents to send their children to his school, since most of these families couldn't afford to part with a working member, thereby giving up on a pair of hands that could earn. Today, with classes up to 3rd standard, Rao takes care of these kids' uniforms and books, besides a small midday meal that comprises of milk and biscuits. © Twitter Rao's story is one that tugs at our dormant conscience, reminding us that every small act of thoughtfulness counts, that every little effort could touch hundreds of lives and make them better if only we can spare the thought, time and resources to look beyond our personal challenges. Why? Because like D. Prakash Rao, happiness and contentment can be found in furthering and building others dreams and lives when our own becomes too much of a work to carry on with. Because didn't Albert Einstein once say that, “a life lived for others, is a life worthwhile” and Rao seems to have proved it true, through and through. Kudos to the man! © Twitter
  7. Frenkie de Jong is not the kind of name (at least, not yet) to be recognised at the sound of it. And, for a 21-year-old, who has five national caps with Netherlands and currently plies his trade in Eredivisie (Dutch football league), this youngster still has a long way to go to establish himself. That's generally the impression when a young and relatively inexperienced footballer comes to mind. But, this youngster is a class apart. One of Europe's most sought-after young players, De Jong had some of the biggest football clubs in the world chasing him with big bucks in the offering. Defending Premier League champions Manchester City were on their toes to secure his services, while Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain were willing to break the bank for the youngster. © Reuters But, after multiple interests and weeks of negotiations, the Dutch wonderkid eventually answered the call of Spanish football powerhouse Barcelona who outsmarted other clubs by splurging a staggering 75 million euros (a little over 605 crore in rupees), plus a further 11 million in variables for the next five seasons (through to 2023-24). So what really makes this youngster worth all that cheddar? Here's the answer. Touted as one of Europe's most promising midfield talents, the 21-year-old has proved himself as a polyvalent player with an excellent reading of the game and ability to provide that 'killer pass'. Honing his skills in the famed Willem II academy, De Jong had spent just a year in Tilburg when he caught the eye of Ajax who secured his signatures in 2015. © Reuters However, he was loaned back from Amsterdam to his former team to ensure he got enough playing time to fully reach his capabilities and develop as a player. The Dutchman, then, returned to Ajax to lead its reserve team in the Jupiler League. A year on from then, he earned first call-up for first team duty, and appeared for the final minutes of the Europa League final against Manchester United in 2017. From there on, De Jong became a regular face and eventually an essential part of the Ajax setup. ðµð´ Ajax talent Frenkie de Jong will join Barcelona in the summer on a five-year-deal... â¹ï¸ All you need to know about the new @FCBarcelona midfielder ððð — UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) January 23, 2019 To further bolster his resume, De Jong has lost possession with only 9.7 per cent of his touches in the Eredivisie since his debut - a lower percentage than any other player (minimum 500 touches) in that period. On the other hand, the youngster boasts of an impressive 91.8 per cent take-on (an attempt to regain possession) success rate and 91.6 per cent pass accuracy to strengthen his case. Frenkie de Jong, Ajax 18-19. Barcelona purchased one hell of a player. That price is eyewatering for a player from the Eredivisie, but given how many super clubs wanted him, it's not a huge surprise. pic.twitter.com/KRaXoWiOmf — Ted Knutson (@mixedknuts) January 23, 2019 Of the 177 players to have attempted more than 25 dribbles, De Jong has a better dribble success rate (86.2 per cent) than any other player since the start of the 2017/18 Eredivisie season. Apart from that, De Jong has not lost a single game in his last 10 matches (for both club and country). © Reuters Right footed and strong in the one-on-one duels, the Dutch wonderkid can play either as a defensive or attacking midfielder. His immaculate vision and natural ability to find the right pass in crunch situations is what makes him the perfect choice as a central playmaker. Other than that, he has the acceleration, craft, control, tactical nous and sharp decision-making abilities. All the necessary skills that'll make him fit into the Blaugrana midfield like hand-in-glove. "With the arrival of Frenkie De Jong we add talent, youth and Barça style to our sporting project. We are convinced that he will be a key part of our team for years to come," Josep Maria Bartomeu said after his deal. And, for all this young gun brings to the table, we couldn't agree more with the Barca president.
  8. Remember waking up on a Saturday morning, loving that you didn't have to go to school, heading straight to the TV, putting on your console and playing your favourite game? Yeah, that's what the weekends looked like when we were kids. Wasn't it fun? Way better than the present day when all we have to look forward to on the weekend is paying electricity bills and getting the flush repaired. Yes, we're all at an age where nostalgia is hitting us hard at every single turn, so today, let's look back at 5 video games we never got enough of as kids: Contra There's no way we're ever forgetting this game. From the cool music to the endless action, it was pretty much the best shooting game of its generation. I'm yet to meet anyone, gamer or non-gamer, who hasn't heard of Contra. As a kid, it was the ultimate video game for me. Shooting games couldn't possibly get any better, right? Boy, was I wrong! Still, you know how they say you never forget your first. Yeah, that! Super Mario Bros. There have been tons of different versions of Mario but the original will always be one of our favourites. No, we're talking about Mario's first appearance (Donkey Kong), we're talking about the game the entire family can enjoy. I remember my brother and my cousins patiently waiting for their turn to play. Spare a thought for Luigi though, the poor guy never stood a chance back then. Road Rash This list wouldn't be complete without paying homage to the first co-op video game in Indian history. No, Road Rash wasn't actually a co-op game, but all of us remember controlling the bike while our younger siblings got to kick anyone who came close to us. If that's not teamwork I don't know what is. I have some fond memories of this one. Midtown Madness Road Rash was our first tryst with racing games, but Midtown Madness was a cut above in more ways than one. We had so many vehicles to choose from, so many different maps. It was a dream to play. It was also my first introduction to the roadster. Boy that car could move. Pac-Man We end this list with possibly one of the most iconic games of the millennium, Pac-Man. The concept was simple, fun and the music just made it so much more enjoyable. It also taught us that eating fruit would scare ghosts away. Now that's top-notch life advice, right? We will never forget any of these video games no matter how many years go by. But, if you're looking for a, sort of, mini-jolt of nostalgia, check out 'Ralph Breaks The Internet.' It is a more than apt successor to the first movie and nostalgia is just one of the reasons why you should check it out.
  9. Remember Savji Dholakia? The generous diamond-merchant from Surat for whom almost half the country wants to work for. Why? Because he showers his employees with gifts and rewards, while most of us sit in our office cribbing about our jobs. But why are we talking about him now? Because Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone's wedding details are out and their hotel rooms cost much lesser than what Dholakia spent on his employees this Diwali. He distributed 600 cars to his employees, at an event that was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Facebook While we don't know how Ranveer and Deepika's sangeet functions are coming around, we've got our hands on something equally interesting - the cost of their hotel rooms in Italy. Ranveer and Deepika are getting married at the Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como on November 14 and 15. According to a report in India Today, the couple and their families are staying at a luxury resort on the east side of Lake Como, instead of a villa. The resort has been booked for the wedding and is being decorated by the florists. According to reports 12 florists were flown in from Florence to decorate the wedding venue.

Given the resort has 75 rooms, then the price is around 25 lakh per day and for a week it cost around 1.73 crores for a week.

Did Ranveer and Deepika make the booking from MakeMyTrip or Goibibo? Instagram Fans of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone can't keep calm as the couple is about to get married in a couple of hours at Lake Como, Italy. Unfortunately, there's nothing else their fans can do apart from looking at their previous pictures, because the couple has asked the wedding guests not to carry mobile phones to the wedding venue in order to respect their privacy.
  10. Well, India is finally home to the largest statue in the entire world. What an achievement! And it only cost the country just a little under Rs 3000 crore to be able to say that. Totally worth it, right? Today was the day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi has unveiled the Statue of Unity, built as a tribute to freedom movement icon Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on his 143rd birth anniversary. Built at the cost of Rs 2989 crore, the statue obviously deserved a grand inaugural event and it was as grand as ever. On the banks of the Narmada stands the majestic statue of a great man, who devoted his entire life towards nation building. It was an absolute honour to dedicate the #StatueOfUnity to the nation. We are grateful to Sardar Patel for all that he did for India. pic.twitter.com/q2F4uMRjoc — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) October 31, 2018 It took 250 engineers, 3,400 labourers and 33 months, but it's finally here. Appreciate the #StatueOfUnity - no better tribute | India could have been a poverty-free country today with $10 Trillion economy if Sardar Patel had become PM in 1947. pic.twitter.com/zkw2rBT7xk — Porinju Veliyath (@porinju) October 31, 2018 But, not everyone is feeling that patriotic today, with so many people not being able to get over the huge amount spent on it, and protesting by talking about how the money could've been used to help the people of the country and put to a much better use. Along with how the money could've helped with a number of things for the betterment of the country, the statue also cost a bunch of tribal communities living in the vicinity their homes as they had to be displaced for this ambitious project. Well, the 'Statue of Unity' has definitely united people in saying how it was a waste of money. Here's what people are saying on Twitter. The scariest thought. Happy Halloween guys. Here's a scary thought, the government just spent 3000 crores on a statue. — Harish Iyengaar (@scaryhairyman) October 31, 2018 Sure it will be. Drinking game for salary day. Have a shot every time someone says the cost of the #StatueOfUnity will be recovered through tourism. — Harish Iyengaar (@scaryhairyman) October 31, 2018 That's amazing! #AccheDin in #Kerala vs #Gujarat Pic 1: AccheDin in Gujarat, the #StatueOfUnity worth 3000 Crores Pic 2: AccheDin in Kerala, #Kerala CM presents 192 flats worth 20 Crores for the Fishermen families. Yes, this is how Kerala Brings AccheDin#KeralaLeads#SardarVallabhbhaiPatel pic.twitter.com/uCFfsfv9SP — RiJOYð¨ð»‍ð» (@iamrijoy) October 31, 2018 Ache din are finally here? The #StatueOfUnity is so tall that once you reach the top all you can see is Acchey Din — Atul Khatri (@one_by_two) October 31, 2018 Umm. The man whose entire politics is based on divide and rule is inaugurating the statue of a man who stood for unity of the nation. What a paradox!#StatueOfUnity #SardarVallabhbhaiPatel https://t.co/POaY4KkxOn — Jignesh Mevani (@jigneshmevani80) October 31, 2018 Hard hitting questions. What did we ultimately achieved, With 2689 Crore How many world class schools World class hospitals, How many farmers loans, How many homes to homeless How many world class universities My dear PM, can u answer please U have made another place for crow to shit. — PARVINDER S GHOTRA (@GHOTRAps) October 31, 2018 Need some answers. For me this has no meaning. My kids end up playing in drawing room as there is no playground in our locality. No proper sanitation and cleanliness, bad roads. Sardar would have not liked to spend 3000 cr on himself. When will our leaders realize. POWER HUNGRY scums. pic.twitter.com/tC6rU7sDpL — Raj Koul (@rkoul2) October 31, 2018 So, they're not here. pic.twitter.com/dzIVMmxABB — 4Dpeople (@4DPeopleIND) October 31, 2018 Forget everything else, this is the most important question. If Statues can be built in record time, then why can't other "important" things like roads and bridges? — Lollipop (@imtiyazasadi) October 31, 2018 Should've kept the man's ideologies in mind. Sardar Patel would have been appalled by the crude boastfulness of the ads in his name in today's newspapers. That his statue is taller than any in China, America, Japan, etc. That is certainly not how the Sardar would have measured national dignity and self respect. — Ramachandra Guha (@Ram_Guha) October 31, 2018 Hypocrisy. The people who had an issue with Mayawati spending public money on Ambedkar statues and parks are the ones celebrating the 3000 crore Sardar Patel statue. — Rohini Singh (@rohini_sgh) October 29, 2018 Okay, then. Arguably the most wasteful & disrespectful way to celebrate one of India's greatest leaders will be unveiled today in #Gujarat. #SardarPatel has been reduced to an election gimmick by #BJP. #Sardar and our farmers deserve better! This is a statue of #Modi in disguise. Rs. 3000cr! — Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) October 31, 2018 The money really could've been put to better use. Wish they had built an educational institution. What a monumental waste. Nice way of showing their 'Mine is biggest' #Modi marketing mentality. Let's pray all our tourists flock to see this supposed #StatueOfUnity. — Siddharth (@Actor_Siddharth) October 31, 2018
  11. As India gets ready to show off its very own “Iron Man”, the 182-metres tall statue of eminent Indian freedom fighter Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel is being hailed as an engineering marvel. Located near the Narmada dam in Gujarat, it now holds the title of “the tallest statue in the world”. Also known as the “Statue of Unity”, the monument is double the height of The Statue of Liberty in New York. Not just that, the construction of the monument was completed in a record time of just thirty three months. The monument has been built by Larsen & Toubro Ltd, and the government had to shell out a whopping sum of 3000 crore rupees for its construction! © Twitter Now, while the monument also rightly boasts of a three-star hotel, museum and audio visual gallery within its premises itself, it nonetheless makes us wonder if the hefty amount could have been utilised for better, and more urgent matters. While Modi Ji decided to turn the crores into an iron statue, we asked 7 men to share how they would have liked to utilise the amount given a chance. Well that was a mixed bag of responses, but we do agree with a few things some of these guys mentioned. With only 7.0 physicians and 17.1 nurses every 10,000 patients, India is in dire need of better healthcare facilities, especially in rural and semi rural areas. Investing and promoting low-cost education institutions could have been another way of putting the funds to better use. Waste and infrastructure management needs to be looked into at the earliest. Gurgaon, Mumbai Assam's repeated struggles with annual floods, could have been treated too, to some extent. These are just some areas we have pointed out, but we're sure you can think of many more. So, we'd like to ask you about how you'd spend the 3000 crores, given a chance.
  12. You know a person is filthy rich when he sleeps on a bed of money since his bed sheet has gone in for a wash, or spends Rs. 7 lakh for 7000 hair strands. If you think I am exaggerating, then you clearly don't watch 'Bigg Boss 12' or follow Anup Jalota. © Instagram All those people who religiously follow 'Bigg Boss 12' will agree with me that Anup Jalota is undoubtedly the best thing to ever happen to the show. From stirring controversy by entering the house with his 28-year-old girlfriend Jasleen Matharu, breaking up on the show to going on a romantic date with Jasleen; people are loving Anup Jalota's unseen avatar. Right when people thought that Anup Jalota and Jasleen's relationship was the most shocking development of this season, Jalota came around and proved us all wrong with his latest revelation. © Colors Recently, the King of Bhajans revealed that he spent Rs. 7 lakh on getting hair transplants. He said that he lost all his hair from the frontal part of his scalp, so his cosmetologist charged him Rs. 100 per hair strand. This means he spent Rs. 7 lakhs for just 7000 hair strands. Dr. Batra, are you listening? © Colors He told Deepak Thakur that some hair strands from his beard were also taken for the transplant. The housemates were stunned with his revelation and so are we. Anup Jalota is not only the King of Bhajans, but he's also the King of Entertainment and he's proving it on the show every single day. Honestly, we are thoroughly enjoying all the drama taking place inside the house. Let us know in the comments section about your favourite contestant from 'Bigg Boss 12'.
